Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) leaked specs include Exynos 7870 CPU, Android 7.0 Nougat

Two Galaxy J smartphones are about to make their debut in the United States very soon, the Galaxy J3 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017), but we've just learned that a third might be coming, too.

We first got wind of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) back in February, when the smartphone was spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance with model number SM-J530FM/DS. The only information about the phone was the fact that it was running Android 6.0 Marshmallow at that time.

Today, the phone appeared again, but this time we've been blessed with slightly more information about its specs. A new Samsung SM-J530FM model has been recently listed at Geekbench, and while some of the details we're offered might not be 100% accurate, it should be enough to give us an idea of what's to come.

First off, the smartphone is now running Android 7.0 Nougat, which is a more than welcomed improvement. At the heart of the Galaxy J5 (2017) sits the same chip that powers the Galaxy J7 Prime, the Exynos 7870. The octa-core processor is paired with 2GB RAM, but the amount of storage remains a mystery for now.

We have yet to find out more about the phone's camera and battery, but we're certain information regarding the Galaxy J5 (2017) will emerge in the coming weeks. We're also not sure whether or not the smartphone will be launched in the United States, just like the Galaxy J3 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017), but we hope to learn more soon.
